Smart-AVI introduces HDMI-to-CAT6 extension solution

Smart-AVI Inc. has announced the release of a new HDMI signal extender that is capable of transmitting 1080p video and embedded audio 150 feet over CAT6 to up to three remote monitors and one local display for real-time monitoring.

Smart-AVI’s HDX-400 is a dynamic signal extension unit that utilizes inexpensive CAT6 STP cabling to transmit high-definition video signals with embedded sound to up to three remote monitors 150 feet away. This source signal can come from a gaming console, DVD or Blu-ray player or any other HDMI device that outputs high-resolution video. In addition, the HDX-400 also supports a local display for real-time monitoring. This allows an administrator to see what is being shown on the remote displays without having to leave an office or control room.

“The HDX-400 is a fantastic product in that it enables the extension of an HDMI 1080p signal by inexpensive CAT6 cabling to several monitors at once,” said Albert Cohen, president and CEO of Smart-AVI, Inc. “Local real-time monitoring is also possible with the HDX-400, which is a very handy feature that allows system administrators to see what’s being played over the remote screens at any given time without having to leave the control environment.┬áThis unit is perfect for broadcasting any high-definition HDMI signal.”
